Dynamically sending new data to the global mbox - Ajax page

How do folks send new data to the global mbox on an ajax page for example?

For the regular mboxes there was mbox define/ mbox update. Still not clear on what it is for the global mbox when we use targetPageParams()

Hi Timi,

You could use an mboxUpdate() call after your Ajax success event. Format of mboxUpdate is like : 

  1. mboxUpdate('target-global-mbox','param1=value1','param2=value2',...);

 

Use mboxUpdate in your callback method of Ajax call.

Thanks & Regards

Thanks  Parit, didnt realize we could reference the target-global-mbox directly in mboxUpdate, good to know.

Tested this out though and I didnt get the expected behavior, it seemed to deliver the offer a second time after the mboxUpdate.

Note: our  targetPageParams() is in the head tag not the body.

Hi Timi ,

Please clarify when is your Ajax event fired? If it is triggered inside body, then it won't be able to set mbox parameters in targetPageParams() method which is inside head tag and consequently, mbox call with not have these params.

Try using mboxUpdate in your callback method of Ajax call.

Thanks & Regards

So that solution didn't work. The Ajax event is fired from the body and our targetPageParams() is in the head.
